If you're unwilling to commit to a long-term, expensive procedure such as microblading or laminating, we've got just what you need—eyebrow pencils are an effective, inexpensive alternative to fuller, bolder brows. The beauty biz is brimming with products to get Cara Delevingne-like eyebrows! But, before we introduce you to our selection of budget pencils, let's offer some expert guidance on how to use them correctly.
"To achieve a closest-to-natural, non-cakey or jarring look, make sure that you have a light hand while glamming up. When filling in your eyebrows, use short and light strokes—in the direction of the natural hair growth—to get perfectly shaped ones. Creating high-arched eyebrows tend to look a bit unrealistic, so go for a believable look that's pleasing to the eye and enhances your facial features," says Chandni Goyal, Makeup Artist, Anastasia Beverly Hills India.
"If you're looking for a soft, structured look, choose a powder formula that matches your natural hair colour. Whereas, if you're seeking a dramatic, edgy look, opt for a product that is cream/wax-based, for instance, a pencil," she adds. Now that you know what's to be done, gear up for Cosmo's edit of the best eyebrow pencils in the market, all under 1K!
